​Coldplay Pay Homage to Linkin Park's Chester Bennington with Piano Cover of "Crawling"
Coldplay kicked off the North American leg of their "A Head Full of Dreams Tour" last night (August 1) in New Jersey, and they dedicated a moment during the show to an unexpected and heartfelt tribute to the late Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington.
 
Chris Martin and co. paused the set to commemorate Bennington, before Martin performed a stripped-down piano rendition of Linkin Park's Hybrid Theory hit "Crawling."
 
Watch fan-shot footage of the performance below.
